About Kweekkraal Guest Farm

Kweekkraal Guest Farm is situated 8.2 km west of Riversdale, right at the gateway to the Garden Route on the southern coast of Africa. The farm forms part of a conservation area and the main house is of historic significance as it was built in 1880. This is a working farm, sheep and cattle are grazed on cultivated oats and lucerne pastures. Other grain crops produced are canola, wheat and barley.

Our accommodation consists of nine units which have recently been lovingly renovated and equipped by the farm owners, Pieter and Sandra van Wyk. Five of the units overlook a farm dam with a backdrop of eucalyptus trees and grain fields. These units each contain two bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen, and a lounge and dining area. Three of the one-bedroom cottages are situated around the swimming pool and barbeque area. There is also a rustic stone cottage bound to lift your spirit and revive your senses. Power is supplied by solar and gas. Up to eight guests can sleep in this unit.

For your convenience we offer braai packs, sandwiches for the coals, fresh salads, wood and soft drinks. The main farm house is presently being renovated to house a coffee shop and restaurant that will specialise in typical South African cuisine.

Wedding Venues: A wedding venue on site is up and running. The Bridal ceremony and receptions can be hosted on site. Overnighting in the honeymoon suite is included in the wedding package

Conference Venues: Conferencing is offered at our conference centre for about 95 delegates. Tables and chairs are on site Catering can be arranged for

Family friendly: Families are most welcome and it is safe to bring the kids' bikes as the can ride on the farm. Plenty of open space to ride a bike, play ball, enjoy the swimmingpool or just go for walks.

Romantic: As we do have the wedding venue we also have a honeymoon-suite for newly weds. Special treats will await them in their room.

              We were so happy. I tried to say thank u to Rona but she was not available at the time. Kweekkraal is a very comfortable, restful place after the N2! It is so well appointed too everything has been thought of. Thank u so much. Will definitely pass on to my friends.

              We will definitely return to this beautiful place. Such a tranquil environment, secluded, yet so much of nature around you. We were welcomed with smiles by our hosts and a friendly greeting to set us off. Thank you so much
